I Annotate 2019

Wed 22–Thu 23 May

Annotation Unleashed: The Web at 30

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee included annotation as a basic capability in the first description of what would become the World Wide Web. 30 years later, we gather at #ianno19 to mark how web annotation is now realizing its promise through standards, developing technology, a vibrant community, and growing traction in many fields.
